Dear GTR Riders:
It's official: the location of GTR 2015 has been revealed, and our next rally will be in (pause for dramatic effect)...Macon. We last visited Macon in 2011, and as you would expect from us, everything for our 2015 return is different. We'll have different routes, different venues, and a different host hotel as we explore the other side of the city. Macon is right in the middle of the state, so it should be easy for everyone to get there on the weekend of May 21-24, which happens to be Memorial Day weekend next year. We've got riding options for everyone: long options, short options, uphills, downhills, and even a flat section every now and then. Macon is very excited that we are returning to the home of Otis Redding's life-size bronze statue.
It's eight months before the rally, but we have many of the details posted on our web site at http://www.georgiatandemrally.com Check it out to see what we have planned. As always, we will have three fabulous days of riding and socializing. Our venues are pretty close to our host hotel this year, so you can park your car and leave it for most of the weekend, or make a very short drive to our parties.
GTR 2015 Registration
Registration for GTR Hall of Fame members begins in January of 2015. Non-hall of famers will register two weeks later, followed by the "new kids", who will get to register until the rally fills up. If we have your correct e-mail address, we will send you registration forms when it is your turn to register next year. What could be easier?
The GTR Rumor Mill
Now that one GTR ride director has retired from her "real" job, rumor has it that the other one is about to take an early retirement package and join her in the life of leisure and rally planning. We will not confirm or deny this rumor, but the celebration begins on November 21 at GTR Headquarters. There is also a rumor concerning a possible GTR fall ride beginning in 2015. Anyone interested? It could happen!
See You at STR
After two weeks of riding in Southern California, we'll be at the Southern Tandem Rally in Columbus, GA at the end of October. We look forward to seeing many of you there. We always like STR because we don't have to do any of the work! We hope to "sit on the dock of the bay" with you in Macon in May. Our web site will have the latest GTR updates and you can get them on our Facebook page as well. We will have further e-mail updates as events warrant.
Have a safe fall riding season.
